At the same time as BYOD usage in the workplace continues to rise, apps continue to gain traction in popularity. This reality poses a danger in that sensitive work files accessed from employees’ phones can be exposed to malware and other security risks from the apps. Because of this, many companies have begun to introduce “Enterprise App Stores” – an organization-wide marketplace with IT-approved apps, both personal and corporate. For example, your enterprise app store might offer an approved file-sharing app – iCloud might have some security issues that Dropbox does not, so only the latter will be available. All of the OK’d apps are in one place, and provide employees who have chosen the BYOD route with the specific apps that they can use. Read more »

GooodJob is pleased to release the results of its “Mobile Recruiting – 2013” survey, which examines 150 companies’ recruiting strategies, with a focus on referral programs and mobile optimization.
Key findings include:
• In over 75% of companies the majority of employees own smartphones
• In 2012, over 70% of companies had low rates of hires via referrals (up to 30%), and over 2/3 are not happy with these numbers
• Over 40% of organizations have already implemented a mobile recruiting strategy, with more than half using mobile-optimized careers websites.
• In 2013, most companies plan to revise their employer branding approaches, increase their social presence and improve the candidate experience
As the proliferation of personal devices continues to develop worldwide, more and more employees are jumping on the bandwagon. As such, organizations are encountering an important method through which to engage workers – by embracing the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) movement and optimizing activities and programs for mobile. Harnessing employees’ constant connectivity allows employers to interact with them on a higher level, one that is more relevant for the modern workforce. Read more »
HR practitioners and researchers alike agree that employee referral programs are an excellent source-of-hire. Cost-effective, yet sporting a significant ROI, referral programs enable corporate recruiters to leverage their employees’ networks to reach quality talent pools.

So you are taking your employee referral program to the next step – mobile. Excellent decision. This is because you understand that referrals are made via social exchanges – while they are managed in the workplace, they are created through the interactions that employees have with their friends during their free time. Whether it’s allowing employees to send you referrals directly from the gym or restaurant where they meet up with potential candidates, or providing them with a quick job link to beam to their social media and e-mail networks, harnessing the power of their mobile connectivity will naturally lead to more referrals coming your way. Plus, with the number of mobile devices rapidly expanding worldwide – including among your employees – it’s a no-brainer that you’d want to provide them with the tools to make referrals on-the-go.
In short, there’s never been a better time to optimize your referral program for personal devices. But before you get started, check out our guest post on TalentMinded to review which features to avoid!

Mobile integration of the referral program is an excellent way to keep employees engaged and active.

The bonus is a central component of the employee referral program. It comes in different variations – cash and prizes/non-cash awards.

However, while a cash bonus may require less time to organize, prizes are ultimately the better motivator. Here’s why: Read more »
